Hamilton Heights picked up a 13-7 win at Maconaquah Friday night behind the pitching and hitting of Cole Meyer.

Meyer threw six innings, overcoming a rocky start in which he gave up six runs through two. After being shutdown their last several games, the Huskies offense came alive to support their pitcher.

“We finally started swinging the bats a little bit tonight,” said Hamilton Heights head coach J.R. Moffatt. “The last three games have been a struggle at the plate to say the least. We still have to cut down on the strikeouts, but tonight was a good step in the right direction.”

The Huskies (2-3) scored at least one run in all sevens innings, and Meyer helped his own cause. The senior went 4-5 at the plate, had had three RBIs and scored three runs.

Senior Gabe Reel also finished with three RBIs on three hits, and seniors Sam Rupe and Cobe Koors each knocked in a pair. Junior Sam Fulton and senior Ike Peterson both had an RBI apiece.

Rupe came in to pitch the seventh to secure the win.

“One day at a time,” Moffatt said. “Today was a big step in the right direction.”
